9 Worst Movie Set Disasters

1. The Conqueror (1956): the radioactive set that caused cancer to John Wayne and 90 more

Of the 220 persons who worked on The Conqueror on its location near Utah in 1955, 91 had contracted cancer as of the early 1980s and 46 died of it, including stars John Wayne, Susan Hayward, Agnes Moorehead, and director Dick Powell. Experts say under ordinary circumstances only 30 people out of a group of that size should have gotten cancer. 

The cause? No one can say for sure, but many attribute the cancers to radioactive fallout from U.S. atom bomb tests in nearby Nevada. Produced by Howard Hughes, he thought the movie was so bad that he bought up every copy (which cost him about $12 million) and refused to distribute the film. For years thereafter, the only person who saw it was Hughes himself, who screened it night after night during his paranoid last years, this until 1974 when Paramount reached a deal with him. This would be the last film that Hughes would produce. 

2. The Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983): a helicopter decapitated three actors

During the filming of a segment of the 1983 movie The Twilight Zone, producted by Steven Spielberg, actor Vic Morrow and child actors Myca Dinh Le (age 7) and Renee Shin-Yi Chen (age 6) died in an accident involving a helicopter being used on the set. The helicopter was flying at an altitude of only 25 feet (8 meters), too low to avoid the explosions of the pyrotechnics used on set. When the blasts severed the tail rotor, it spun out of control and crashed, decapitating Morrow and Le with its blades. Chen was crushed to death as the helicopter crashed. Everyone inside the helicopter survived sustaining minor injuries. 

The accident led to legal action against the filmmakers which lasted nearly a decade, and changed the regulations involving children working on movie sets at night and during special effects-heavy scenes. The incident also ended the friendship between director Landis and producer Spielberg, who was already angered before the accident that Landis had violated many codes, including using live ammunition on the set. 

3. The Crow (1994): Brandon Lee, killed by a prop .44 Magnum

As one of the scenes of The Crow was being filmed, Brandon Lee --Bruce Lee's son-- was shot and killed by a prop .44 Magnum. The scene involved the firing of a full-powder blank (full charge of gunpowder, but no bullet) at Brandon's character; however, unknown to the film crew/firearms technician, a bullet was already lodged in the barrel and hit Lee in the abdomen. 

But that wasn't the only accident; the set was plagued by numerous accidents even before Lee's death. On the first day of shooting, February 1, 1993, a carpenter was severely shocked and received serious burns when the scissor lift he was driving came into contact with high-voltage power lines. On March 13 heavy storms destroyed some of the elaborate sets causing delays. Later a prop master discovered a live round in one of the prop guns and an enraged carpenter drove his car into the studio's plaster shop. Also a worker was injured when a screwdriver was accidentally driven through his own hand and a stuntman fell through the roof of one of the sets. 

After Lee’s death, a stunt double, Chad Stahelski replaced Lee in some scenes to complete the film. Special effects were used for digitally compositing Lee’s face onto the double. The original footage featuring Lee’s actual death is the source of some controversy. Some accounts claim it was destroyed immediately, without even being developed while others suggest it was later given to Lee’s family. Brandon Lee was buried beside his father. 

4. XXX (2002): Vin Diesel's stuntman smashed into a bridge and died

Harry L. O'Connor, Diesel's stunt double on the XXX action movie, was killed on a scene in which he was supposed to rappel down a parasailing line and land on a submarine. When O'Connor failed to rappel down the line fast enough, he hit a bridge at high speed and was killed instantly. His death was caught on camera. Director Rob Cohen decided to include the footage of the scene, with the final moments edited out, as a matter of respect for the stuntman's final act.

NOTE: our reader Chris comments: "I think it is notable for the list that Diesel's stuntman had already done the stunt successfully before he was killed. He felt that it wasn't good enough, that he hadn't got close enough to the bridge (for suspense purposes) and asked the director if he could do it again. It was during this second take that he was killed. I believe, as a side note, that his family had arrived in Prague just before the accident to watch his stunt and were present during his death." 

5. Top Gun (1986): an aerobatic pilot crashed after his scene

Tom Cruise's worldwide most famous movie Top Gun was dedicated to thememory of Art Scholl. A renowned aerobatic pilot, the 53 year-old was hired to do in-flight camera work for the film and was engaged to fly the difficult "flat spin" scene. When he climbed into his Pitts S-2 camera-plane on the set of Top Gun – as he had so many times before - he had no idea of the dark fate that awaited him. During this scene, Scholl reported a problem with the plane; he was unable to recover from it and crashed his Pitts S-2 into thePacific Ocean, off the Southern California coast near Carlsbad on September 16, 1985. Neither Scholl nor his aircraft were recovered, leaving the official cause of the accident unknown. 

6. The Final Season (2007): a camera man, killed on a helicopter crash

While filming the baseball movie The Final Season, released on October, 2007, camera man Roland Schlotzhauer was killed while filming some parade sequences. Roland was well-known for his ability to capture shots from helicopters and he was filming from a Bell 206 when it hit power lines. The helicopter then crashed into a field seriously injuring the pilot and a producer on board, while ending Roland's life. 

7. The Return of the Musketeers (1989): actor Roy Kinnear felt from his horse and died

During the filming of the 1989 movie The Return of the Musketeers, actor Roy Kinnear fell from a horse in Toledo, Spain, sustaining a broken pelvis. He was taken to hospital in Madrid, and died from a heart attack the following day. The film's director, Richard Lester, quit his own film career as a direct result of Kinnear's death. 

8. Jumper (2008): set dresser fatally struck by frozen debris

While dismantling an outdoor set in wintry conditions for Jumper, a sci-fi thriller starring Samuel Jackson, set dresser David Ritchie was fatally struck by frozen debris. Investigators later found that the sand and earth frozen to the wall for exterior design came unstuck as the set was being torn down, falling and crushing Ritchie. The film kept going, eventually receiving widespread criticism and poor reviews from critics. 

9. Troy (2004): hurricanes, a broken leg, and ironically, Brad Pitt's achilles tendon

What could go wrong in a gazillion-dollar epic production starring Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom and Diane Kruger? Ironically, during the filming of Troy, Brad Pitt who played Achilles had a mishap during the production and tore his left achilles tendon. But the worst was yet to come when George Camilleri, a keen bodybuilder, broke his leg while filming an action sequence at Ghajn Tuffieha. He was operated on the following day but suffered complications and died 2 weeks later. In addition to that, while filming in Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexico, the production had to deal with two hurricanes in less than a month; the last hurricane came the last week of production, when everything was pretty much wrapped. Despite all of that,the movie kept going and was finally a box-office hit.

The Vampire Diaries Season 1 Episode 5 You’re Undead to Me

The Vampire Diaries Season 1 Episode 5 You’re Undead to Me

Life Imitates art: exactly as in MOVIE in real life !!

 Final Destination (2000): woman missed Air France flight 447, only to die in a car crash 2 weeks later

An Italian woman who didn't get on the recently crashed Air France flight 447 because she arrived late to the airport was killed in a car crash just two weeks later. A lot like the movie Final Destination!

Johanna Ganthaler, a pensioner from Bolzano-Bozen province, had been on holiday in Brazil with her husband Kurt and missed Air France Flight 447 after turning up late at Rio de Janeiro airport on May 31. All 228 people aboard lost their lives after the plane crashed into the Atlantic four hours into its flight to Paris. After losing the flight, the couple had managed to pick up a flight from Rio the following day.

Two weeks later, Ms Ganthaler died when their car veered across a road in Kufstein, Austria, and swerved into an oncoming truck. Her husband was seriously injured.

According to a Brazilian TV show, the woman and her husband hadn't bought a ticket from Air France. Both travel at Iberia. The surviving husband testified the story was just a lie. Thanks, Dani 

 Unbreakable (2000): boy survived being hit by a car unscathed

In the movie Unbreakable, David Dunn (Bruce Willis), a depressed security guard, survives a violent train crash without a single scratch. Recently, four-year-old Turkish boy Muhammet Dirlik also got lucky: he was hit by a car, which sent him tumbling down a flight of stairs. But what seems like a surely fatal accident left Muhammet unscathed.

 Destination Moon (1950): man gets to the Moon

Perhaps the most boring movie ever made about space travel, Destination Moon, is a tale of astronauts obeying Newtonian physics. The dramatic climax comes when the crew realizes they don't have enough fuel to make it back to Earth, and even after dumping all of their unessential gear, one of them will have to stay behind. 

At its best, Destination Moon is an astonishingly sober primer on the physics, and potential complications, of space travel. When the crew takes off, an extended sequence (they're all extended, really) shows the effects of acceleration on their grimacing faces. When it's time for a spacewalk, the astronauts put on their suits and wait, and wait, as the air cycles out of the crew compartment. It's all very scientific and responsible. For what it's worth, the moon also looks remarkably like it should. And when the rocket first leaves Earth, the crew counts down from 30. There is such a thing as too much realism. 

 Demolition Man (1993): Schwarzenegger for President

In this movie, Sylvestor Stylone's character, a time-traveling cop from the past, is told to his disbelief that actor Arnold Schwarzenegger had become president after the Constitution was amended. In 1993 when they made Demolition Man directors probably figured 'Lets go for the most ridiculous futuristic prediction for Schwarzenegger and make him a President, oh yes he'll like that!'

Not only is Arnie's dream of being a US President a possibility --he's already governor and the Constitution could be amended--, but the futuristic New World Order which mirrors that depicted in the 1993 movie is possible as well. 

 Love Story (1970): Ryan O'Neal at the bedside of his dying wife

A talented actress and a brave fighter against the cancer that ravaged her life, Farrah Fawcett died recently with actor Ryan O'Neal by her side. Her relationship with Ryan imitated art as the ending of his most famous film, is at the bedside of his dying wife. In 1970, he got an Oscar nomination for Love Story, in which his character's wife dies of leukemia. 

 Americathon (1979): China rises, USSR collapses, and US faces financial crisis

In 1979 a strangely prophetic movie was written by Phil Proctor and Peter Bergman starring John Ritter, Fred Willard, and Harvey Korman. "Americathon" was made 30 years too early–in 1979. John Ritter plays the president in a future America (1998) when we've run out of oil and cash. Among the hilarious–and insane–predictions for America 20 years into the future were that China would embrace capitalism and become a global economic superpower. Nike, then a fledgling little shoe company in Oregon, would become a multinational conglomerate. The USSR would collapse. People would buy expensive, specialty coffee drinks. And America would be deep in debt to foreign investors. Do you see any coincidence?

 Weekend at Bernie's (1989): two pensioners took their dead friend to cash social security check

"Weekend at Bernie's" documents the experiences of two friends lugging their dead boss around in an effort to convince people he isn't dead. In January 2008, two men were charged with larceny and improper-burial. Pensioners David Daloia and James O'Hare took their naked dead friend, Virgilio Cintron, got him dressed and putted him in a wheel chair and tried to collect his social security check. A policemen said Cintron was unresponsive, flopped around unsteadily in the chair and appeared to show early signs of rigor mortis and had the pair arrested after they failed to get the $355 Social Security check cashed. Daloia and O'Hare claimed they were simply helping their sickly friend, whose landlord was trying to evict him. 

The two men were later found not-guilty because the prosecution couldn't prove exactly when Virgilio had died.

 The China Syndrome (1979): US Nuclear Power Station had a radioactive leak

"The China Syndrome" is the story of two journalists (Michael Douglas and Jane Fonda) who discover safety concerns at a nuclear power plant. In the film, after witnessing a near meltdown, Douglas and Fonda convince Jack Lemmon to blow the whistle and expose the risks of nuclear power to the world.

The movie, released in 1979, was criticized by the nuclear power industry as an irresponsible act of fear-mongering. As if to prove that they were the authorities on irresponsible acts that incite fear, just 12 days after the film's release, in a poorly built nuclear power station in Pennsylvania, a reactor began to overheat and got the nuclear technicians on panic.

Sure enough, within a few hours high radiation levels were being found and an evacuation of the nearby area was quickly ordered. Very little radiation had in fact leaked out and nobody was at risk of turning into mutants. But America has never let an absence of any real threat ruin a good panic, and the nation spent most of 1979 freaking the hell out about the dangers of nuclear power. The effects were devastating for the mental health of the local community, but it was all aces for Hollywood. "The China Syndrome", capitalized on the similarities between the two events and swept up at the box office.

 Office Space (1999): Californian indicted in $50,000 scam of E-Trade

After performing poorly at the box office, "Office Space" became a massive hit on DVD. In the film, the protagonist, played by Ron Livingstone, takes office rebellion a little further and decides to rip off the company he works for. His scam involves stealing fractions of pennies from financial transactions that would usually automatically be rounded up to the nearest whole dollar. The idea is that the company would never miss such small amounts but that over a long period of time the pennies would add up.

In 2007, Michael Largent, a 22-year-old employee, decided this sounded like a pretty neat idea. Largent used an automated script to open up 58,000 accounts with online brokerage firms. Once the account was opened, the firm would send micro deposits of a few cents to verify that it had opened properly. Soon enough, Largent gained $50,000 and the attention of the FBI as well.

Apparently, Largent had seen too much TV and opened his accounts under the names of cartoon characters. He was eventually caught when the Patriot Act required the brokerage firms to take a closer look at the identity of their customers, and they presumably noticed 11,000 of them were named Speed Apex.

10 Movie Characters That Turned Out To Be Real People

 Lucy (50 First Dates) - Michelle Philpots

Every day, Michelle Philpots wakes up next to a man who has to convince her they are married. When she expresses doubt, he takes out a photo albumand shows her pictures of their wedding 13 years ago. Only then does amnesiac Mrs Philpots accept she is talking to her husband, Ian, and that everything he has told her is true. The 47-year-old's condition was caused by brain injuries sustained in two road accidents. She can recall everything up to 1994 but since then everything that happens on one day is forgotten the next. Her case echoes 50 First Dates, the 2004 movie in which Adam Sandler tries to woo Drew Barrymore, who has no day-to-day memory following a car crash

 Zorro (The Mask of Zorro) - Joaquin Murrieta

Zorro is the secret identity of Don Diego de la Vega, a nobleman and master living in the Spanish colonial era of California. He is a black-clad maskedoutlaw who defends the people of the land against tyrannical officials and other villains. Joaquin Murrieta, also called the Robin Hood of El Dorado, was a semi-legendary figure in California during the California Gold Rush of the 1850s. He was either an infamous bandit or a Mexican patriot, depending on one's point of view. Murrieta was partly the inspiration for the fictional character of Zorro. His name has, for some political activists, symbolized resistance against Anglo-American economic and cultural domination in California. In fact, a character with his name appears in The Mask of Zorro. In the film, after Joaquin's death, his (fictional) brother, Alejandro (Antonio Banderas), becomes the new Zorro and later kills Captain Love in revenge. 

 Viktor Navorski (The Terminal) - Mehran Nasseri

“The Terminal” is a moving tale, where Tom Hanks plays the victim of the modern world. That a man could spend months stuck in diplomatic limbo living in an airport may seem far-fetched, but in fact, the movie is inspired by a real-life character who lived at terminal one of Paris Charles De Gaulleairport. The living urban legend is Mehran Nasseri, known as “Sir Alfred” to those who work at the airport. Stranded without papers, Nasseri was a stateless refugee from Iran, unwanted by any nation. Having claimed to have one British parent, he decided to settle in the UK in 1986, but en route to there in 1988, his briefcase containing his papers was stolen in Paris. Despite this setback, he boarded the plane for London but was promptly returned to France when he failed to present a passport to Britishimmigration. He was initially arrested by the French, but then released as his entry to the airport was legal and he had no country of origin to be returned to. A red plastic bench beside a luggage store was his home for no less than 18 years. Director Steven Spielberg may have moved the airport to New York for his movie and made Hank's character East European, but there's no doubt who the movie is based on. Nasseri's life at the airport ended in July 2006 when he was hospitalized and his sitting place dismantled.

 Hanna Schmitz (The Reader) - Ilse Koch

Kate Winslet's character in The Reader was based on one of the Third Reich's most notorious war criminals. The life of Ilse Koch, a concentration camp guard nicknamed "The Bitch of Buchenwald," was strikingly similar to that of Hanna Schmitz, the role played by Winslet in the Oscar-tipped film. Like Schmitz, Koch came from a poor background. She married Karl Koch, a close friend of Adolf Hitler, in 1936, and accompanied him when he was made commandant of Buchenwald camp the following year. As a supervisor of the camp's female guards, she whipped and beat prisoners. Witnesses said she forced prisoners to rape one another and was eventually disciplined by Nazi chiefs for her brutality. As Schmitz does in the film, Koch killed herself after being sentenced to life in prison for her crimes perpetrated in a concentration camp. Before her suicide, Koch had been reunited with her illegitimate son, who had only recently discovered his mother's identity and crimes. He wrote poems and sent them to her in prison. In the film, Schmitz is effectively reunited with Michael Berg, a former lover who is shocked to see her in the dock when he attends a war crimes trial. After she is sentenced, he sends her taped books to listen to in prison. Also, Ilse was accused of having affairs with prisoners, while Hanna was suspected by her camp inmates of selecting female prisoners to have sex with.

 Raymond Babbitt (Rain Man) - Kim Peek

Kim Peek is the man who inspired Dustin Hoffman's character in the movie Rain Man. His life was thrust into the spotlight after meeting screenwriter Barry Morrow, who used Peek as the inspiration for Dustin Hoffman's Oscar-winning character, Raymond Babbitt. Although inspired by Peek, he was portrayed as having autism. After the 1988 film became a hit, Peekspent the next 21 years demonstrating his mental abilities to more than 64 million people around the world. Peek, who was able to retain nearly 98% of what read, heard, and watched (the average person holds on to about 45%), could read and memorize books as a 16-month-old and had committed as many as 9,000 books to memory.

 Norman Bates (Psycho) - Ed Gein

Norman Bates is a psychologically disturbed hotel owner who has delusions that his dead mother, whose body he keeps in the cellar, wants to kill hotel guests. He develops a dual personality and dresses like her when he commits his murders. The film's screenplay by Joseph Stefano was adapted from a novel of the same name by author Robert Bloch. Remarkably, Bloch's 1959 novel was based on legendary real-life, Plainfield, Wisconsin psychotic serial killer Edward Gein, who was arrested in 1957 for committing two murders and digging up the corpses of countless other women who reminded him of his dead mother. He skinned the bodies to make lamp shades, socks and a "woman suit" in hopes of becoming a woman. He was found to be insane and spent the rest of his life in a mental institution.

 Laurel Hedare (Catwoman) - Heather Bird

There is a theory that says the character of the movie's villain (Laurel Hedare, played by Sharon Stone) was based on real-life anti-aging advocate/entrepreneur Heather Bird . At the time that the "Catwoman" movie was being developed by French director Pitof, Heather Bird was making headlines in Europe by introducing a revolutionary new anti-ageing cream. The fictional Laurel Hedare's revolutionary new anti-ageing cream is the central plot element of the "Catwoman" movie. Note that prior to filming, the screenplay referred to the cosmetics company central to the film's story as "Avenal Beauty." "Avenal" could be a play on the word "Aves," the scientific and Latin word for "birds," a subtle reference to Heather Bird's name. When the film was actually made, the name of the company was changed to "Hedare Beauty." The real-life Heather Bird is not an evil villainess. But she does have many traits in common with Sharon Stone's character, aside from their promotion of cutting edge anti-ageing technologies. Both are beautiful blonde women. Both are from Salt Lake City. Heather Bird was born and raised in Salt Lake City. Laurel Hedare lived in and had the company headquarters in Salt Lake at least at some point in the planning stages of the "Catwoman" movie. 

 Rocky Balboa (Rocky) - Chuck Wepner

Chuck Wepner, a battling, bruising club fighter who had never made it big time, but in 1975 he had his shot in a fight with world heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali. It wasn't at all regarded as a serious battle. But as the fight progressed, this miracle unfolded. In the ninth round, Wepner landed a punch to Ali's chest and Ali was knocked down. Wepner went to his corner and said to his manager, "Hey, I knocked him down." "Yeah," Wepner's manager replied, "but he looks really pissed off now...". People went absolutely crazy. Wepner was finally knocked out in the 15th and final round, almost lasting the distance. Young actor Sylvester Stallone watched the fight at home on television and was inspired to write the script for Rocky, based on Wepner's gutsy challenge. 

 Emily Rose (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) - Anneliese Michel

In the movie, a priest is on trial for the death of a young woman named Emily Rose, upon whom he had performed an exorcism. The film was inspired by Anneliese Michel, a 16-year-old German girl who, in 1968, began displaying symptoms of demonic possession. For years, she suffered paralysis, self-abuse, starvation and demonic visions until 1975, when two priests performed exorcisms of what was believed to be several demons over 10 months. During that time, Anneliese barely ate, and she died of starvation in July 1976. Her parents and the priests were tried and found guilty of manslaughter. They were sentenced to six months in jail.

 Herschel Shmoikel Pinchas Yerucham Krustofski or Krusty the Clown (The Simpsons)– Jim Allen from Rusty Nails

Herschel Shmoikel Pinchas Yerucham Krustofski, better known by his stage name, "Krusty the Clown," is the cynical, burnt out, addiction-riddled smoking clown host of Bart and Lisa's favorite TV show, The Krusty the Clown Show. The character of Krusty was partially inspired by real-life clown "Rusty Nails" whom Simpsons creator Matt Groening watched as a child while growing up in Portland, Oregon. Jim Allen (b. 1928 or 1929) portrayed the clown character Rusty Nails. His program on KPTV was the second-longest running children's program in Portland, second only to Ramblin' Rod Anders.
